Description

This part of the park is home to the iconic Jim Jim Falls and Twin Falls. These spectacular waterfalls are best seen by air during the tropical summer, when heavy rains send huge volumes of water crashing into the gorge below. During the dry season, you can hike over boulders to the base of the falls. 4WD is required and trailers are not permitted. The creek crossing to twin falls is usually between 400mm to 600mm deep with a firm concrete base. A snorkel is recommended. Immerse yourself in rugged natural surroundings as you navigate challenging walking tracks to the Arnhem Land plateau. Jim Jim Falls features a 2 km return walk through monsoon forest and over boulders to a deep plunge pool or family-friendly beach pool. The waterfall flows from the start of the tropical summer until mid-July. Swim at your own risk in the Jim Jim plunge pool only. Twin Falls gorge is accessed by a shuttle boat, a walking track over boulders and sand, and a boardwalk. From the boat you'll see countless fish species, long-necked turtles and maybe even the elusive pig-nosed turtle (warradjan). No swimming at Twin Falls due to crocodile risk. No camping or overnight parking allowed.

We visited on 10/8 and we found the road ok. Yes it's corrugated but no problem with a 4WD and lower tyre pressure. From Cooinda lodge it's about 1.5 hour to get there, considering 40 km of unsealed road and 10 on the 4WD track. The road was fun! Follow us on Insta if you'd like to see some photos and videos from the falls @spidervan_adventures

The road in at the moment has bad corogations in it, but just air your tyers down and you will have no issues.

Road in to the camp site was good just dropped our tyre pressures down a little. Road or should I say track into Jim Jim was easy in a 4x4, creek crossing has a small bridge over it and no water in the other creeks.
